#BIRTHDAY: Glennis Grace from the Netherlands is 44 today

Anyone can win the Eurovision Song Contest. There, I’ve said it. We cite the examples of Portugal and Finland. But there are others. Recently we had a win by our friends in the Netherlands. Over the years, the Dutch have had a wobbly record.

Yes, they’ve had five wins in 62 years, but there was a time not so long ago when getting out of the semi-finals was a tall order. One of those unlucky semi-finalists was today’s birthday girl Glennis Grace (née Glenda Hulita Elisabeth Batta). She did her thing in Kyiv and only came equal 14th. It was a tough gig, fighting it out with 24 other worthy acts. She tied with Ireland, and she still got a maximum. It didn’t stop Glennis. She was last seen making the final of America’s Got Talent in 2018. Who says Eurovision kills careers?
